Chocolaty Goodness

In case you don’t subscribe, I’d like to share this recipe that was in my recent newsletter (view entire newsletter HERE). If I were to link this to any of my books, I’d say this is something that Shinju in Hatsept Heat, Vampire Council of Ethics Bk 3, would make. She’s a professional and classically trained chef who dreams of one day having her own restaurant. She ends up revamping (pun intended ;D) the kitchens at the Northern Territory Headquarters of the Vampire Council in Montana…after becoming a Serati warrior, of course. And yes, she cooks for her man in the book. It makes for some interesting, uh, dessert.

I’m not a big raspberry fan, but this looks so good I want to see if I can get my daughter (she’s a pastry chef) to make this. Enjoy!
